**ANTIQUE GLASS BOTTLES

Antique Glass Bottles

The earliest glass bottles were produced in Egypt, Syria, Greece and Cyprus as early as 1500 BC using the core forming techniques. Around 50 BC, probably in Syria, the discovery of the blowpipe and the technique of glass blowing made the blown bottle possible. The following examples from the Allaire Collection of Glass illustrate various examples from 6 BC to 1850. Absent from these examples are American glass bottles which we will save for a later blog.
